Then came Monday, we were able to get several things done we needed to, like laundry, house cleaning, shopping, etc. Then we went to Ponrockiette for FHE. We had a great lesson there and played some games.
Next Tuesday, we went and helped out some of the sisters, then off the piano and English class. both were great, then we reminded our Institute group of the Big Activity on Friday, Elder LeFevre taught a young man new to the Priesthood how to give a blessing, and then the sister missionaries, who had both been ill, ask it Elder LeFevre and Lavon would give them a blessing. It was a sweet experience and the spirit was so strong all night.
Wednesday, we helped out with cars ( the 3 Sr. couples are sharing 2 cars), so we were home for part of the day, so we prepared for lessons, and the activity. Wednesday night Elder LeFevre went to his district Pres. meeting and I got to go out teaching with the Sisters. Sister Varea and I went to visit a man named Augustine, his wife is a member of the church, but he is not. We had a great lesson on chastity and Eternal Marriage. I got to share my testimony of the Temple and the Sealing power.
Thursday we had district mtg, then we sent our car with the Vincents to Kitti and had a little quite time. It was kind of nice. When we got the car back, we went to Palikir and taught Piano and English lessons and reminded out Institute class of our big activity on Friday.
Well Friday came and we spent the day getting everything ready for the Young Adult/Institute "Movie Night" We spent a solid hour popping popcorn( you can't buy it pre-popped here) and between the hot air popper and the microwave, it took us an hour to pop all the popcorn. Unfortunately, my microwave died in the process, so we are now without a microwave, but it was worth it, because the looks on the young adults faces when they saw the popcorn was great. Popcorn is a special treat, they rarely,if ever get it, so they ate every kernel before the night was through( and we had 2 big garbage bags stuffed full). We put all the candy we had in the apartment in 2 large buckets, we got the water cooler ready to go and off to the church we went.( By the way great big shout out and THANK YOU, to all our kids and brothers and sisters that contributed bags of candy and popcorn, via boxes from home, we could not have done this night without your wonderful generosity, you probably did not think much of it when you sent the popcorn and candy, but hopefully the pictures at the end of this post will show you the fun YOU created by sending such wonderful packages, we don't have a lot of popcorn or candy here on the island, and the young adults, children and adults alike love it. of course who wouldn't IT"S CANDY AND POPCORN, so THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts and all of the children, adults and young adults that have benefited from you goodness)
